Wedding Photographer Raphael
My name is Raphael and I have over 10 years experience as a Professional Photographer. My adventure with photography started when I was 7 years old and has been ongoing ever since. I am primarily self-taught and am always trying to find my own way to achieve the same results as other professionals in the industry. I met a lot of people, couples and singles, and have been to wonderful weddings, unforgettable places… The knowledge I gained from those experiences is immeasurable. I have done many types of photography over the years including nature or macro, though, I can say with certainty my passion for this work comes from peoples personalities, moods and feelings. Those powerful and intangible things that elicit emotion and reaction from the viewer. The things that separate snapshots from photographs; things that appeal to more than our sense of sight and encapsulate a feeling to open later and re-experience to share with loved ones
My photography philosophy and style
I believe that in hiring a professional wedding photographer, clients deserve a professional that is able to use his or her technological expertise and creative vision to create a product that clients and amateur photographers could not on their own. With digital SLR cameras becoming more and more affordable, there are many amateur photographers out there posing as professionals. My goal is to educate our clients on the differences, and provide artistic imagery that far surpasses other first-rate wedding photography studios. Being able to quickly adjust camera settings, anticipate lenses needed for each scene, use on and off-camera lighting techniques, etc are crucial to being able to consistantly create a professional product.
